This is the end, my friend

When I look all I see is darkened skies as far as the eyes can see,
swirling clouds forming battlements to lightning whips command,
while the winds carry warnings and promises of doom,
spreading distrust and suspicion under scrutiny of their gaze,
now it’s nation against nation, brothers against sister, man against humanity,
there’s no avoiding this final confrontation, pride and hate locked and loaded,
restlessly waiting for the crack of the first shot,
it’s the call to an end where no-one is left standing,
maybe then peace can reign over these blood-soaked tired lands……

  2. I have long felt the earth only had so much capacity for blood drinking. I too think it is about full.

  3. pride and hate locked and loaded,

    That is a powerful image! When will peace settle over a weary world? When will humility and love make a stand? Will it all be gone in grains of sand in a desolate land?
